A recent open house event at Medica Packaging’s Crewe, UK, premises provided an opportunity for the company to show visitors the Chrysalis, a new, “affordable and effective” carton for drug packaging.
Produced under license from Burgopak, the Chrysalis allows for integrated storage of the patient information leaflet (PIL) within the carton. The open day allowed Medica to demonstrate to visitors the critical element of attaching the PIL to the carton as part of the folding and gluing process.
The design keeps the leaflet compact and accessible for when the consumer needs to check information about the product. The easy-tear perforation on the back panel of the pack allows the consumer to access information without destroying the whole carton
Medica sales director Deborah Greenwood commented: “The unique design also has the ability to simplify the manufacturing process. As the carton is supplied with the leaflet already applied, there is no need to insert it separately. Tests have already shown that this allows for increased output through faster product inserting, whilst simultaneously decreasing costs.”
